Section 301 investigation (imports from China)
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) today released for publication in the Federal Register a notice [PDF 228 KB] making amendments to the reinstated exclusions in the Section 301 investigation of China’s acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation.
Technical amendment—retroactive to the date of publication of the original exclusion
A technical amendment corrects the description of the articles covered by one of the reinstated exclusions. The amendments in the notice apply to entries of goods that are not liquidated or to entries that are liquidated, but not final. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation.
Conforming amendment—applies as of January 1, 2023
A conforming amendment is required to maintain the pre-existing product coverage of the China 301 actions.
